David Robert Bell, beloved son of Robert and Annette Bell, passed away with his family by his side on June 21, 2020. Being an avid fisherman, his favorite place was on the water, and now he’s fishing in Paradise, "searching for his lost shaker of salt". David was an adoring husband to the love of his life, Deborah Bell, and devoted Dad to their children: Pete, Andrea, Richard, Dawn, Bobby, Johnny, and Andrew (Boo). He was an immensely proud Popo to their thirteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. David was a man of simple tastes who wanted his service to be a casual celebration of life, therefore, the family is requesting folks to wear vibrant colors in his honor.

I can still hear David's voice in the background when Deborah and I were on the phone. She would tell me something over the phone, he'd chime in, she would tell him something , he'd say something else and it would result in me bursting into laughter. David was a very caring individual, all heart. You could hear it in his voice. Apparently, he was an excellent chef too, because Deborah would bring lunch from home and proudly say "David made this last night", having those of us jealous, staring sadly at our sad looking sandwiches. David...you will be greatly missed.

Dave, rest in peace my friend. Gone too soon, but never to be forgotten. You left a legacy with your beautiful family to ensure that. Climb that mountain son, the Good Lord will take care of them for you now. Gonna miss you, but there's a fishing hole up there waiting on you. God Bless you & yours forever, Bill and family

Just want to share a memory about how I came to know the Bell family. It was right after Harvey at the fire station in Plum Grove. Our crew were exhausted from countless hours of working through the storm. Deborah and David showed up and asked how can we help they were like and angel sent to us. I have never met a more kind and caring couple. With nowhere to sleep our crews had resorted to sleeping in the trucks. Deborah and David not knowing us opened up their home to all of our crew members at the Fire Station during our time of need even while dealing with their own troubles following the storn. I cannot express enough how grateful we are for you and your family for everything you have done for us, and just want you know we at Plum Grove VFD have , and will always consider you both family to us. We are very sorry for your loss. We are here for you with anything you may need please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Spent the last 7 years working alongside of David at XL Parts Humble. I can honestly say have never met a man more devoted to his wife and family. He did love to fish and we shared some good stories over that.
David was a superstar in the business having forgotten more than some new comers will ever learn. Was giving in every way sharing a snack as needed. He will be missed and will always be on our mind. Rest In Peace my friend.

David loved all his grandchild equally. He never made one feel above rest. That’s was made him special.

David and I worked together along with one our best friends Jeff Smith; At a company named Installers Service Warehouse back in the early 90's. Life at this company was difficult because of the low pay, However, We were always on speakerphone with the other 6 or 7 other branches throughout Houston. We laughed our behinds off everyday Monday thru Saturday. They worked us to death for minimal dollars. But the camaraderie was so hilarious everyday. I will never forget the day we went to a weekend crawfish boil at a coworkers, and we pushed David and his wife into the pool!! They were such good sports! I will always miss you and love you David.

My deepest sympathy to my cousins for their loss. Davids smile will be certainly missed. Lots of memories I will cherish one particular is he and I fighting for Aunt Liz's cranberry dump cake at Christmas. Rest in peace David.
